An FIR has been registered against the CEO and founder of an e-commerce major for allegedly selling popular Maggi noodles online during the ban period, in five Indian states.

A case was registered yesterday against CEO of Snapdeal Kunal Bahl and its founder Rohit Bansal for online sale of Nestle’s instant noodles in five states including Rajasthan during the period of ban between June 7 and October 30 last year, police said today.

A complaint was yesterday lodged by Lalit Sharma, a Jaipur-based lawyer following which police registered an FIR under sections 420 (cheating), 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 272 (adulteration of food or drink intended for sale), 273 (sale of noxious food or drink) of the IPC and sections 59 and 63 of the Food Safety and Standards Act 2006.

When contacted, the company spokesperson said they have not received any information on the same.

Last June, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India had placed a ban on sale of Maggi after they found high levels of lead in it.

The Bombay High Court, however, had revoked the ban on Maggi on October 19 paving the way for it to be back on shelves.

    For a simple Computer glitch, the Indian Police file FIR against a CEO of a international company. Huh, ha. Well they, for sure, scared all International INvestors to come to India. Mr. Modi is working hard travelling the globe, seeking FDI. Here these police and few Lawyers are enough the throttle the FDI investors into Dizzy and make them disappear from Indian scene. Hard work by India Police men. Welcome to India!.

    This is another rude and out-of-time Laws for current technology times in history. For every little nitty kritty, Indian Police file FIRs only and always against the CEOs. This will scare the Foreign Companies out and drive them nuts. Without investigations, why would an FIR required for against Company CEOs. These are old orthodoxy Laws which needs change. Unless there is a credible evidence based INvestigation that finds CEO involved in a Crime, filing FIR against CEOs are haring their personal liberty, freedom and it violates Fundamental Rights of Invidual Rights under Consution.
